Almost 10 years ago, my father left this world, almost exactly one year after mom. Today would have been his birthday. Sometimes I couldn’t remember the date, but I knew it was always near fathers’ day.
Just a short little post to remember someone I loved and admired. They didn’t make many like him.

Nope, not nearly enough…

Husband and I were just talking about Papa and Grandma today. I miss them, Daddy. I wish Husband had gotten to meet them.
Happy Birthday to your Papa! Always liked that song. Enjoy your memories on this special day.
I’ll bet his birthday sometimes fell on Father’s Day, making the day that much more special. Happy birthday to your Dad and thanks for sharing his memory!
It’s going to be my first Father’s Day w/out my Dad and I miss him very much. Happy Birthday to your Dad and Happy Father’s Day to mine.
Happy birthday J’s dad. My father’s birthday was a national holiday (Vet’s Day) and he has been gone 13 years…
i forgot his birthday was in June. I was thinking it was in November for some reason. I miss him.
I believe today is Aunt Del’s birthday. I miss her too along with Papa and the rest of our relatives that are no longer here!
